Additional living expense (ALE) insurance refers to coverage under a homeowners, condominium owner's, or renter's insurance policy that covers the additional costs of living incurred by a policyholder should they be temporarily displaced from their place of residence. Such coverage usually amounts to about 10% to 20% of the insurance that covers the dwelling.
Additional living expense insurance can cover things like the increase in a monthly food bill due to having to eat out at restaurants or even the loss of income that might be incurred if the insured person has been renting out part of their dwelling to a tenant. Essentially, the insurance is intended to cover the insured person for the extra expenses they may incur as a result of being temporarily displaced from their home—say, because of a fire or a flood.
Imagine, as an example, that a tornado renders your house uninhabitable, requiring you and your family to relocate for several months until the home has been repaired. ALE coverage helps pay for costs like hotel stays and restaurant meals until you are able to return to your home. Some of the other items provided for under ALE coverage may include:
Although the above costs may be covered by ALE, there will always be an assessment of how claimed costs compare to the normal costs of a policyholder's lifestyle. This is because additional living expenses are meant to cover the difference between what you normally pay for things and what you now have to pay, due to the fact that you're not living at home.
ALE coverage will not pay for damage to your belongings or to the structure of your home, but those should be covered by other elements of your insurance policy. Dwelling and personal property coverage, as well as other elements like liability coverage, are standard inclusions in most homeowners policies.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
